We Work With

WomenChildrenYouth

We work for the emancipation of women.

We facilitate empowering platforms for women and girls from diverse communities to share experiences and ideas

Through their agency and leadership, women act collectively to assert control over land, resources and food, and counter violence against women.

We help children engage in creative and joyful learning processes.

They connect to local ecologies and histories,
build their curiosity, recover the lost harmony with nature,
nurture diverse lifeskills and grow to build a just and free society.

Youth are critical in visioning and determining a just future and sovereign ways of living.

We help youth of marginalized communities from Universities, Civil Society build their leadership as Community Organisers for collective transformation by developing their critical consciousness on issues of Social Justice and Buen Vivir.
